The Medical-Legal Partnership (MLP) Clinic is a law school clinic, staffed by licensed attorneys and law students, that provides free legal assistance to low-income patients referred by our medical partners at the University of Kansas Health Systems (including the University of Kansas Hospital) and Lawrence Memorial Hospital.
Representation is focused on the following “I-HELP” priority areas in which legal services can have the greatest impact on the health of patients:
- Income supports
- Housing and utilities
- Education and employment
- Legal status (immigration)
- Personal and family stability
If you are a patient at one our medical partner’s facilities, you can ask your provider about how to access the MLP Clinic’s services.
